Manifestly, Pope Francis hadn’t received the memo that genuine Islam is a psychotically savage creed when he wrote the following last November: “authentic Islam and the proper reading of the Koran are opposed to every form of violence.”
With all due respect to the pontiff: WT*!?!
This is–by far–the most feckless and disturbing comment any Christian leader has ever propounded concerning Islam. In fact–at least in my estimation–it is chillingly mindless.
Perhaps the pope has never heard of Islam’s founder–the Prophet Mohammed? Well, according to Islamic historians and scholars–Mohammed was an unabashed war-monger, anti-Semite and misogynist. And–when he wasn’t busy propagating Islam via jihad–he was having sex with a 9 year old by the name of Aisha.
Mohammed’s displays of “authentic Islam” also included the mass execution (beheadings) of 900 Jews from the tribe of Qurayza subsequent to the Battle of the Trench (627 A.D). And just what crime did these Jews commit? They refused to recognize Mohammed as a true prophet of G-d.
If one engages in the “proper reading of the Koran”–one will find that it is imbued with passages that demand violence against the “people of the book.” Of course this is a direct reference to the very cohorts Mohammed despised the most–Jews and Christians.
Such passages as Sura 5:60, 9:5 and 9:29 not only demand jihad against Jews and Christians–but demand it until they are “utterly subdued.”
(In Islamic parlance “utterly subdued” means having your freakin’ head cut-off.)
Despite the inane musings of Francis–we have witnessed authentic Islam in such places as Syria, Iraq, Nigeria and Egypt as thousands of Christians are being slaughtered by those simply following the barbaric and bloody paradigm set by Mohammed.
And lest we forget the most visual piece of authentic Islam ever inflicted on modernity: 9/11.
After all it was Osama bin Laden himself who stated–ad nauseam–that he was highly motivated by “true” Koranic doctrine as well as Mohammed’s ”example” of jihad against the “infidels.”
It is certainly sad and disquieting–given today’s relentless Islamic aggression against the church–that a highly venerated Christian leader would pen such vacuity.
And that’s why–when it comes to Islam–the Pope is a pinhead.
